of ten year time frame we would manage the cut and spending and tax increases and in investments, we need do all three. we need to tax, cut, and invest in the source of our strength. i think that would have a huge effect. i think americans today feel in many ways like children of two divorced parents. i think it's a pal in the country in a lot of ways. it would be huge. if we got a grand bargain on energy how to exploit the boundary of -- i think the two together would have a huge impact. so the question is how close are we to that? and, you know, i have a saying about the middle east which applies to the american politics. all important politics happens the morning after the morning after. >> when is that? >> here i'm talking about the election. here i think the question really is i don't know how the election is going come out. i make no prediction. i ask myself if romney gets smashed, if he gets smashed, it would -- i happen to think the political problem in the country we have a center left party and we have a far right party. that is a structure problem. the republican party has gone
are jobs. i will be the only candidate advocating eliminating income tax, corporate tax, abolishing the irs and replacing that with one federal consumption tax. i embrace the fair tax. i think that is the answer to jobs. if the private sector does not create tens of millions of jobs, i did not know what it will take to create tens of millions of jobs. it is the entry to china. i see manufacturing jobs flocking back to the united states. are you hearing these things from these other two guys? no. they are arguing over who will spend more money on medicare. romney said he wants to increase spending for the military and balance the budget. it doesn't add up. i guess we believe in santa claus and the easter bunny and i do not think they are coming. host: gary johnson is with us and will add a third line for third party voters. we will get to your calls in just a couple of moments. what is the strategy for the rest of the election? guest: right now there is a lot of attention that is being drawn to what it is that i am saying. i'm being recognized for being at 6% nationally. i'll ask you an obvi
needs in missouri? would you work with the general assembly on a plan for a tax increase to raise revenue for transportation? would you help provide the leadership in pushing for a vote to raise needed revenue for transportation? >> well, we need to make better use of the tax dollars with god. i don't, you know, i guess there was a plan to expand on 70 and expand the interchanges and put in toll roads, turnout over to contractors and let them run it. i'm not sure that's the thing we should do first, you know, we have to maintain the roads we've got an obviously maintain the bridge is. but you know, keep the tax, the gas tax the way it is now and make more efficient use of the money we've got. maybe contract out more, more things. if you give the contractors a bonus for finishing early, that seems to work. so things like that we would do. >> jay nixon. >> thank you. we have a long history in this area and our state. we have a very large system. so as i came in, with the doing a couple things and are now in the process of implementing a sumo foer. the first was to expand the capacit
and a tax cut. that was done with the republican governor, is split between republicans and democrats in the house and senate. it was a bipartisan effort. we got it done for texas. road. been on the i really do not know. >> mr. sadler, a democrat has not won a statewide office in texas since 1994. do you consider this an uphill battle? >> for an open senate seat, it is always a battle, and should be, and needs to be, regardless of the party. i understand we have not elected a democrat in a long time. >> let's go to mr. cruz. he said the day after you beat lt. governor dewhurst, he said he would run scared for the general election. but you have agreed to this and what other debt -- televised debate. you criticized governor dewhurst for having almost 40 candidate forms up to the primary, but are you planning its eighth and coasting? safe and coasting? >> we have been crisscrossing the state of texas. we have been all over the state, literally hundreds of dop's and vfw halls and enny's talking with voters in every part of the state. that is what we are doing between now and election day.
't say tonight that that tax bill he vetoed raised taxes only on the rich and gave the rest of you a break -- but he vetoed it anyway. i offer a new direction. invest in american jobs, american education, control health care costs, bring this country together again. i want the future of this country to be as bright and brilliant as its past, and it can be if we have the courage to change. [applause] >> president bush, your opposing statement. >> let me tell you a little what it's like to be president. in the oval office, you can't predict what kind of crisis is going to come up. you have to make tough calls. you can't be on one hand this way and one hand another. you can't take different positions on these difficult issues. and then you need a philosophical -- i'd call it a philosophical underpinning. mine for foreign affairs is democracy and freedom, and look at the dramatic changes around the world. the cold war is over. the soviet union is no more and we're working with a democratic country. poland, hungary, czechoslovakia, the baltics are free. take a look at the middle east. w
there be anything surprising that emerges from there? mike the committee be smaller tax >> we were talking about rumors earlier in the context of -- might thed committee be smaller? >> we were talking rumors earlier. probably the u.s. is on the side, a minor concern that may have affected by a day or two. but fundamentally i think this got decided out of an internal logic in china, and not looking at united states. my own personal guess is that if you look at the pool of people eligible to be the next and the commit -- standing committee, we may have some difficulty deciding which fisher going to get pulled out of the pond. it is revealing to look at the fish in the pond, the totality of what they are choosing among and what we're looking at is a more diverse group of people in terms of education, business, law, even humanity, to some extent. we are looking at a broader generations. we are looking at people, we were talking about xi. he has some enormous experience, my those leaders from all over the world visiting his city. i think we are looking at people experienced in the world. when we look
policies will make things better for hem. >> what's my plan? give tax breaks to companies that invest in america. >> i want to see us export more jobs -- export more products. i was channeling my opponent there for a second. >> i will act to repeal obamacare. >> i got everybody in my state insured. i don't think there's anything that shows more empathy. >> obamacare! >> i'm going to win in ohio. i'm going to be the next president. >> i'm going to be the nominee. >> bain capital was formed to invest in start up companies to harvest them as a significant profit. >> we're all on our own if romney that his way. i strongly suggest that you wake the [bleep] up. >> all right. now, president obama and mitt romney are of course out on the campaign trail. they both happen to be in virginia today trying to rally their own troops, and then they've even got ads, as well, where they are both facing the camera which always is slightly awkward if you ask me and making their personal appearances saying you got to vote for me and this is my plan. in has ad that president obama has, it's actually two mi
leader with the ability to take on the tasks at hand. to balance the budget, to expand the tax base, to give our children back the american dream. the candidate is ross perot. the issue is our children. the choice is yours. host: from 1992 when he ran his first of two independent bids for the white house, falling short in 1992 and 1996. one viewer says we need to listen to all points of view. we need third parties. one question is the role of third parties in politics. here is ross perot. >> you ran twice. you established the united we stand and the reform party. do you feel that is needed today? is there something wrong with the two party system that has gotten more acrimonious. >> it is almost impossible to do it. it would be a very healthy thing if you could get it done and make it happen. it is very difficult to do, and very few people would want to try to do it because they know they will be butchered from day one. much of the media will participate actively in that. host: the whole interview conducted by richard welfare's tomorrow evening at 9:00 eastern time -- richard wolf t
biden. [video clip] >> they voted against extending the middle class tax cuts. why? because they were holding it hostage to make sure they could continue their tax cuts. and romney adds another tax cut with a total cost to the economy of $1.70 trillion. it is $250,000 a year in additional tax cuts for those same 120,000 families and anybody making more than $1 million. >> all these promises were made on the idea of hope and change and it sounded pretty good to people. but when the rhetoric went aside and the time to act occurred, the ideas are the old idea that a failed time and again. borrowing and spending and regulating and taxing and printing money, all these things do not lead to prosperity and. all these policies say take power from people, many from families and a successful small businesses and job creators, ascended to washington and then they decide. that does not work. host: that's a taste of the vice-presidential nominees over the weekend. they will go head-to-head on october 11 in their only official the bait. let's stick to your calls. will the vice-presidential candidat
on c-span2, a look at what happens to individual taxes if the bush era tax cuts expire. former congressional budget office director douglas holtz-eakin and other economists look at the issue. our live coverage from the urban institute here in washington, d.c. starts at noon eastern. >> every generation through our history has worked and sacrificed to leave a better country to their children and grandchildren and future generations. we, we were then spending their money, we are now even more, much more, spending their money, and we are leaving them a mess that will be a very difficult to deal with, and if we are that weak, just think of who wants to come here first and take us over. now, the last thing i ever want to see is to see our country taken over because we're so financially weak we can't do anything. >> uh-huh. >> and we're moving in that direction. we're on the edge of the cliff, and we have got to start fixing it now, otherwise we're leaving a disaster to our children and grandchildren in the future, and we could even lose our country. >> ross perot, interviewed by "us
, it remains to be seen. but then that will require some other tax. that would be my big request like everybody else. get america's finances under control and that will take both parties. it will take taxes and it will take reduction in commitments that have been made. it now can be validated. let's get this but do it in a way that exacerbates the uncertain economy. the second -- we have to happen through innovation. whether it is the space program or tax credits for renewable energy. all that is important. we have to keep that going. that will get hard because we will face is demographics. that is my 74th birthday on april 7. i am aware of the and aging population which i have become and we are an aging population relative to what we were. luckily, we have millions of fresh arrivals that are younger and are energetic and they come from all over the world. we have to make sure our education system lifts them to their highest aspirations. when the society ages, it tends to -- it declines. that is the big demographic imperative. i was reviewing one of my favorite books on the roman republic. how
. they should pay taxes. then we should have some kind of clear pathway. it does not mean the front of the line. we can make whatever requirements we want. but we cannot continue to stick our head in the sand. this is too important, too important for our state. if we do not do anything, we will have the same discussion. >> mr. cruz, do you support a path to citizenship for the 1.6 texas? >> i do not. and let me say more broadly, i think there is a very clear divide. as i said before, i commend mr. sadler for running as an unapologetic liberal. illegals. i do not. he supports obamacare. i do not. mr. sadler has opposed second amendment rights. i fight for second amendment rights. >> what does that have to do with? he is going off on -- >> mr. sadler has championed on income tax and the state of texas. i oppose that. there is a sharp difference. that is good, becauseit gives texans a clear choice between what is right -- the right direction. >> so what would you do for the illegal immigrants here? do you see that as a problem? >> the texas home-building and restaurant industries are sensitive to
about about the fiscal cliff coming and new tax increases and spending cut us. but the really problem is in february when out of the necessity who is president will have to go to the congress and say we need a trillion or two trillion in borrowing authority to pay our debts. we have got i mean, this is a conservative message which people, whether they agree with you or not. >> this is real. >> this is real. and we are on a spending binge. >> woodward will appear on "fox and friends" to discuss the economy and next fiscal cliff is just around the corner. there are fewer than 100 days before we reach that impending fiscal cliff. the expiration of bush tax cuts the start of a trillion dollars of budget cuts. tax magedon is unsettling to one large segment of the economy and mike emanuel explains. >> many small business owners are expressing anxiety as the u.s. economy faces the fiscal cliff. that is in tax hikes and government spending cut to do you to take affect in the new year. >> i want to grow and invest in the community and holding things back just because of the uncertainty. >> a s
the latest controversial cuts. there are speculation pensions could be cut back, taxes raised in-state own businesses privatized. prime minister mariano rajoy is looking to slash spending by some 40 billion euros, about $50 billion. the prospect of yet more austerity for a country in deep recession -- unemployment running staggering 25% -- has already seen thousands take to the street in clashes with police brief was get the latest from our correspondent in the madrid. >> the frustration of some people here in spain and particular the young, has pulled over on to the streets for two nights running here in madrid. they were not the violent demonstrations we saw from the night before but there was some tension last night. but many here in spain feel the government here has no choice, that it needs to reduce its spending to balance its budget for the to convince the eurozone which have already helped out the banks here and might have to help spain again. late last night, thousands again gathered on the roads around spain's parliament. again, a tense atmosphere as the police moved in. but ther
have to find $900 billion of tax increases or cost reductions. i think that mitt has to press president obama on what his plan is to do that. he has steadfastly refused to cut costs. that portends $900 billion of tax increases. our economy simply is not going to recover quickly with that hanging over its head. mitt's plan is more cost reduction. president obama is much, much bigger. income prehensably large tax kin p increases. people think letting bush tax cuts on people earning over $250,000 is the answer to the problem. that is $50 billion a year. if you cut capital gains and estate tax it is another 50 dal billion a year. that doesn't cut it. melissa: congressman, do you think the governor should go into numbers like that? i'm a thumb members gal. i like to see what is really happening. i'm not sure the rest of the american public can sort through the math? should he talk about the real picture of the economy and talk about passionately. which do you think is better case for the economy? >> no doubt he will talk about unemployment north of 8% for 43 months. no doubt he will talk abo

good stewardship of tax dollars. >> the libertarian party is often associated with changing the drug laws and you've advocated for that as well. >> changing the? >> drug laws. the >> has come since 1989 of advocated legalizing marijuana, controller cannot regulate, tax it. we had a tipping point with regard to marijuana and legalizing it. i think that colorado is going to do that. it's on the ballot in colorado this november, regulate marijuana like alcohol. i think it is going to pass. when it passes and if it doesn't pass the colorado come is going to pass the 50% of americans now say they support the motion. it is a growing number. it's a growing number because people are talking about the issue more than they ever have before, recognizing 90% of the drug problem is prohibition repeated, not use related. that is not to discount the problems of use and abuse, but that should be the focus. i think when we legalize marijuana were going to take giant steps forward regarding all other drugs and that is going to be starting with looking at the drug issue first as a health issue rather t
us more tax increases and more regulated debt. >> eric: talk about the real personal income and durable goods. that is, why? >> what we earn is important to our spending power and standard of living. we are down $4000. and that is real disposable income. and looking over the period of the president's term, we are down $4000 median per household . durable good orders. machines. cars and trucks and planes. down 13 percent. one month that is a decline and that points to recession. >> steve: seems like we are slowing down. over in trouble in europe and nothing on horizon. everybody slog down and america could leave the world out of america could expand and drag the world with it >> eric: personal income is down especially with gas at four bucks a gallon. >> national average 3.80. >> brian: fewer dollars to spend. >> we have food price inflation. our standard of living is declining. are you better off, no. you are not better off. >> steve: stewart i talked to a number of business owners and they were reluctant to hire. if mitt romney is elected president of the united states. wou
earnest. how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried the last four years. >> vice president biden just today, said that the middle class over the last four years has been quote, buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states! [cheers and applause] gregg: republicans didn't waste anytime trying to utilize the biden remark, did they? >> we'll be hearing a lot about that over the next couple weeks. and i can assure you the white house wishes they could reverse time and get biden to say something, anything different from that. but you know, for those us in the press that is the nice thing about joe biden. he is always sort of ad-libbing and giving us great things to write about. gregg: that updates the biden gaffe clock that the rnc always run on their website. paul ryan seems to have recalculated the infamous 47% remark that, hess running mate uttered. take a listen to this. >> today, 70% of americans get more benefits from the federal government in dollar value than the
they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify? jamie: stu varney the host of varney and company joining us. i listened to it and read tonight print, is in any other interpretation. report no, vice president biden got it absolutely right. that's an objective statement of fact. income down $4,000 in those four years. 54,000 down to $50,000. personal wealth, a lot of it destroyed in the housing crash. down 30% on home prices. then there is the american dream which is fundamental to middle america. that's not been destroyed. but many middle class americans no longer share that dream. so over 50% think the future will be worse for their children than it is now. so in the early part of the day joe biden got it right. the middle class has been buried the last four years. later in the day he tried to wash it back saying the middle class has been buried by the policies which ryan and romney supported. that's how the day ended. what percentage of the policies the president says he's been working t
to say. not just how we get rid of tax abductions, but all of them except two. but also which industries are mature enough that we should rip the rug out from underneath them and stop giving him all kinds of tax breaks. speaking very candidly with me. i first asked about different kinds of government strategies where government works best with this, here' here is what senator mccain had to say. >> you're picking winners and losers, and obvious in the case of solyndra and many others, we have picked losers. but there are so many technologies that have been developed is gps, the internet, but that is a research and development area handed over from the private sector. that is where the debate takes place. liz: so overall instead of going into very young industries and say here, let's help this country over that one, it is helping the idea? >> research and development. one of the reasons most of us have supported research and development was whatever area or sector of our economy is it has proven to be incredibly beneficial. many national laboratories have produced incredible new technologi
to release his tax returns, saying that wasn't the issue that mattered the most. do you think the president is addressing the issues that are most important in this campaign? >> i think our president has done a fundamental -- a phenomenal job addressing those issues. let me correct. it was not meant to be a criticism. it was correcting all of us to make sure we stay focused on the message where the american people are. we want to hear about jobs. we want to hear about health care. we want to hear about those things that are really right in front of the american people today. the president certainly got on that stage in charlotte and did exactly what we all expected and knew he could do. that was to bring the issues right to the american people. >> let me ask but this group called mayors against illegal guns. you're out with a new ad featuring a survivor of the aurora movie theater shooting, asking candidates to address the issue of gun control at the debate. how likely do you think that is? how likely do you think this shooting, the shooting of a u.s. congresswoman, the subject comes up whe
details, but it means more tax hikes, more budget cuts, more cuts to social spending, cuts we expect in some form or fashion to people's pensions. they're clearly angry. last night it got extremely violent. this morning in athens, also extremely violent for the same reasons. >> david kelly, how closely are you focused on this in terms of putting money to work? how important is this in terms of the investor class? >> i think it is important as you allocate money around the world. it's one of the reasons i would still be under with europe right now. european governments are not dealing with their economic problem. it's so frustrating to watch the ecb do everything right in terms of protecting the banks and the sovereign bond market and watch the politicians fail to do what's necessary to get these economies to grow. you have to stabilize the patient before you try and fission their long-term problems. the politicians don't do this. that means europe stays in a recession. for u.s. investors, i think it is still something of a side show. >> something of a side show. until they either com
in france, the tax rates? >> it's a nice story, but all the budgets have been way too optimistic. it's not i78 possibmpossible, b challenging. >> all right. my quote of the day already. sterling in reaction to that hasn't moved an awful lot. as far as -- i get so used to looking at my old camera and i'm not looking at this one, so i do apologize. euro-dollar at 128.79, dollar yen steady, as well, not huge moves. we are firmer the first trading day of the last quarter. yes, it's all downhill or uphill to christmas depending on your point of view. ibex up 0.8%. spanish yields are lower this morning ten year below 6%, 5.92. italian yields also slightly up 5.14. meanwhile plenty of folks on spanish banks, shares have been suspended, that's why that's in black after they approved a right issue. it will report record write downs of 9.3 billion euros. and former unicredit ceo is set to stand trial in milan and other executives over allegations of tax fraud. that trial is taking place in milan and that is where claudia joins us now. claudia, just sketch out for us again the outline of this case. >>
of failure. this is deadly earnest. how they can justify, how can they justify raising taxes on the middle class? the middle-class has been buried last four years. how, in lord's name, can they justify raising taxes? >> vice-president biden today said that the middle-class over the last of we or years has been buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging, which means we have to collect mitt romney as president of the united states. >> meanwhile, paul ryan has appeared in videos online. in a speech delivered last november, he said 30% of americans want to live off the government. today, 70% of americans get more benefit from the federal government and a payback in taxes. you could argue we are already passed a tipping point. the good news is, survey after survey, poll after poll, still shows we are a center-right country. 70% of americans won the american dream. only 30% want the welfare state. what that tells us is, at least half of those people currently in that category are there not of their wish or will. >> new video has surfaced of embattled missouri congressmember and republi
medicare, cuts to education and tax cuts to the rich, he's been very forceful about contrasting his views on things with what he says are the views to the other side which are sort of embracing a host of unpopular positions to these constituencies he's mobilizing the debates and had success with it and police tried to paint romney as an out of touch equity guide working-class person of the team that it's been fairly successful strategy particularly but only with the base but white working-class voters to be competitive in this election the obama team realized correctly there is a very off-putting thing about romney which is embodied in the republican party these days, but romney doesn't particularly without saying a word of the republican performance. it has been designed to optimize the things they might say that what really ticked off the base for the democratic party and raise concerns among independent voters. they probably couldn't have done much better captured by the elements that are far away by the level of conservatism and social issues, paul business of corrupting paul ryan and
having an honest conversation and making sure that they actually get down to brass tax as opposed to the thousands upon thousands of ads we've been showered with here in the state over the past year. that's really, at the end of the day, what people are looking for, real solutions, ideas and how do we get that back to the state of the country. >> you don't want to hear zingers? >> it's fun for me, i'm a radio talk show host but for voters they're looking for mitt romney to be tough, for the president to be tough. i think at the end of the day they want solutions. >> recent poll shows president obama up a stun ing stunning 15. is that what you're seeing and hearing on the show? >> not really. our guest yesterday was blunt and called it garbage. when you're talking about that kind of poll, we call it an outlyer here in new hampshire, 15-point lead for the president is pretty obscure. it's much, much closer than that, much closer to the four to seven points that the president has been ahead since the convention. >> high profile, viral videos in roent weeks, one featuring mitt romney
the fiscal cliff and the tax armageddon and the dysfunctional congress and all of this kind of thing. are there concrete steps the president can take as the principal foreign policy actor to reverse perceptions or to counter perceptions that the united states is in decline in terms of its global influence. >> the most important one by far is attempting to heal the rift domestically in answer to your first question we should have said what i think is the biggest change more than the five areas that tom talked about that weakens us which is that we have never been i.t. as politically polarized and divided. we have never had a dysfunctional congress or dysfunctional relationship between the two ends of pennsylvania avenue. so, the biggest thing the president can do, and he doesn't have to negotiate with any of the foreign partners to do it is to get a slide down the fiscal cliff that has a lot of lease soft landing at the bottom, and to attempt to go beyond that i think -- i hesitate to say this because it seems unlikely, but in trying to find some common ground on a range of domestic i
in both cities. more cuts in government spending and higher taxes as they try to balance their budgets. michelle caruso-cabrera joins us this morning. ft calls this a step toward a full blown constitutional crisis in spain. why now? >> absolutely. when it comes to spain, why now? there's going to be a new budget announced tomorrow. that's expected to have new austerity measures that many spanish citizens won't like. in greece, any day now we'll hear what new cuts they will be making there. this was scene in greece a little more than an hour ago as thousands of striking union members descended on the main square in athens in front of the parliament. once again, tear gas used to disperse the crowds. police beating some of the protesters who refused to move. at one point it looked like the national guard might go up in flames. things have calmed down. on to madrid last night, where thousands there surrounded the parliament there as well, chanted phrases like "let us in," "we want to evict you." police did use rubber bullets and we watch live as they beat some protesters. as you mentioned
of evasiveness. i feel they have been dodging questions, not revealing their taxes, and not giving any alternatives to what obama has already proposed. from the obama side, i would like to hear the reasons why some of their positions and not been passing through the congress. host: this from don -- you can give us a call and tell us what you are looking for as the debate season commences. the baltimore sun has this piece -- dan barry, connecticut, keith on our republican line. caller: i will not be watching the debate tomorrow night. i have seen enough of the show that they put on and it's not real. the questions are staged and the moderators are chosen by the candidates. the questions are preselected. only certain people [no audio] they will disagree on a couple things to make some highlights in tomorrow's news. other than that, you have two of the same guys on either side of the stage in a choreographed event. there's lots of other strings that are choreographed on tv that would be a lot more entertaining than this staged event for a candidate that the gop forced down everybody's thr
, that tax cuts to the rich. he's been very forceful about contrasting his views on things with what he says are the use of the other side, which are sort of embracing a host of unpopular positions and would do all kinds of unpleasant things to these constituencies if he manages to get into office. i think it's double down and mobilize the base. i think also the way he has tried to paint romney as an out of touch private equity guy who wouldn't know a working-class person at the came up in bidding in the nose, it's been a fairly successful strategy, particularly that only with the base but with the white working-class voters that romney need to reach in huge numbers to be competitive in this election. i think the obama team realize quickly that there were some very offputting sings about romney which are to something and body and republican party these days in his whole image that romney is a particularly fat target, let's just say. i think finally we can't believe this without saying a word about republican performance. it has been designed you might almost say that they try to sit down and
